  • Very disappointed with our experience. Started at the top and made our way down after an uninspiring lunch in the less than half full dining room but the wait for food was over 40 minutes. The overall impression was that the exhibits were poorly lit and under described. A lot of the written descriptions were almost impossible to read if somebody's shadow was cast over them due to the overhead spot lights. My personal favourites were the mocked up cabins and the beds/bunks as well as the dining tables of the Cunard line. Had seen enough after an hour and a half. If you enjoy lots of video screens and poster presentations this place is fine, but if you prefer a more traditional style of museum, this isn't it.
  • Fantastic museum with great exhibits. Very unique
  • Loved the titanic and smuggling exhibitions
  • Well kept histoey
  • Great place to visit very emotional at times because of the Titanic's history but really enjoyed it
